Get to Know Alex
The Chopped judge tells us about her best beauty buys — and her truly Italian hair.
“My favorite sweaters are from Vince and my favorite jeans are from NYDJ. I am a pants gal.”
“When I’m in the kitchen, I wear jackets from Crooked Brook and Adidas sneakers with tons of cushioning.”
“My mascara is Diorshow — I can add a lot of layers and get volume and length, but the goop factor is very low. I also use Dior’s Art Pen liner. It glides on smoothly and holds steady for hours.”
“I have dry, frizzy, uncooperative hair — that’s my Italian ancestry! To make it shiny, my trifecta is L’Oreal EverSleek shampoo, It’s a 10 conditioner and Biosilk hairspray. I really love to wear my hair down, because I’ve had it in a bun for most of my adult life to keep it away from the food I’m making.”
“I have some Prada bags, but I also love a good ol’ Food Network tote. Some of the things inside it are blush and lipsticks."
“Revlon ColorStay foundation is such a steal! For a few dollars, you get endless cover-up moments.”
“So much of beauty is about making sure your face is hydrated and refreshed, and Yon-Ka face spray is the best for this.”
"I also keep Band-Aids in my bag — you never know when a knife cut will happen — and Maldon salt. I also keep a drawing from my daughter, Ava; it gets me through the day.”
